Toy rockets regularly come out top when it comes to choosing an all rounder toy for youngsters. With many different varieties, suitable for different ages, a rocket is a universally loved choice perfect for girls and boys.
Great for learning about the force of gravity and basic physics, a toy rocket encourages active play which is increasingly important as children grow up. With so many screens to distract us and online games and puzzles to keep us indoors, itâs a real asset to have an engaging toy that involves lots of physical activity and provides another reason to head outside.
The range of toy rockets available includes the Peppa Pig rocket, an interactive musical rocket, the big bang rocket for outdoor play, whistling football rockets for throwing and catching games, a make-your-own rocket-copter, and an LED light up rocket set.
If itâs likely that your toy rocket will be utilised by the whole family make sure you opt for something robust rather than aesthetically pleasing. The key will be durability in the face of competitive throwing and play. As with all childrenâsâ toys, keep in mind the suitability of your purchase for the age range that youâre buying for. For younger children itâs best to avoid small parts altogether.
